Knowing what to expect and that you are not alone can make a big difference. We are here to help.



Understanding is often a second step to acceptance and moving forward. The need to know is a powerful driving force.



Moving equality forward doesn’t happen by accident. Standing up and speaking out can change the world.

PFLAG is a national non-profit organization with over 200,000 members in the United States. The Twin Cities Chapter is proud to serve the metro area through support of LGBT individuals. United, we can make a difference in someone’s life by moving equality forward.

A Faith Perspective

PFLAG Twin Cites is pleased to be hosting an interactive discussion panel on religious faith. Each of the four panel members will speak briefly on the intersection of their faith and LGBT issues, followed by a question and answer session with the audience. 


Father Shannon Kearns graduated from Union Theological Seminary in 2009 with his Master of Divinity degree.  He currently resides in the twin cities and is a priest in the Old Catholic Diocese of New Jersey and has recently started a new church in the Uptown area of Minneapolis called House of the Transfiguration.  Their focus is transformed people and transforming Minneapolis…..they integrate a traditional Catholic mass with new music and are inclusive to ALL people.

John Fournelle is a queer theologian, having graduated from Bethel Seminary with a Masters of Arts (Christian Thought) in June 2013. His thesis was on developing an integrative soteriology using the works of Paul Tillich and Gustavo Gutiérrez, but also wrote several papers on queer theology. His current research interests are queer Christian sexual ethics, and the intersections of the thought of Paul Tillich and queer theology.


 KirstenCackoski from First Christian Church, has spent many years reconciling her Christian faith with her

 belief that ALL people are children of God and need to be loved and accepted, especially by the church.  For her it is very important

 that all children feel safe and loved at home, school, and places of worship.  Kirsten has a son who is gay.

Reverend Sirry Alang was born and raised in Cameroon and moved to Minnesota in 2010.  She is currently a PhD candidate in Health Services Research at the University Of Minnesota School Of Public Health. Sirry and her wife Kim enjoy being part of LGBT, faith, race and ethnicity, and health organizations and activism in the Twin Cities.

Avenues for Homeless Youth

Homeless gay youth are still prevalent in the Twin Cities area. Avenues for Homeless Youth has been helping homeless youths restart their lives. Their mission has been to provide emergency shelter, short-term housing and supportive services for homeless youth in a safe and nurturing environment. Through such service, Avenues seeks to help youth achieve their personal goals and make a positive transition into young adulthood.

The GLBT Host Home Program provides transitional living arrangements for 10 homeless gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth and young adults ages 16 to 21 in safe, supportive, volunteer host homes.

Raquel (Rocki) Simões has been at Avenues since 2007 and the manager of the GLBT Host Home Program, which she helped start in 1997.
